ILLEGAL HOTELS COMMUNITY FORUM
Thursday, May 21st 6:30-8:30pm
Hartley House – 413 West 46th St (btwn 9th/10th Aves)
All over the city, landlords are evicting tenants and illegally renting apartments to tourists to increase their profits. To protect the city’s affordable housing stock and the safety of our homes, tenants are advocating for changes that keep hotels out of residential buildings and that penalize landlords who break the law!
At the Community Forum, we will:
- Release a new report detailing the staggering amount of uncollected fines and housing code violations on these hotels in residential buildings
- Hear what our elected officials are doing to pass vital legislation to crack down on illegal hotels
- Learn what tenants can do to organize and fight back!
Invited/Attending Elected Officials:
State Senators: Tom Duane; Liz Krueger; Daniel Squadron
Assembly Members: Jonathan Bing; Deborah Glick; Richard Gottfried; Micah Kellner; Linda Rosenthal
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn
City Council Members: Gale Brewer; Daniel Garodnick; Jessica Lappin; David Yassky
